They should be Baptized, have already received Holy Communion for the first time, and normally receive the Eucharist whenever they participate in the Liturgy.  Servers should be at least 10 years old and in the 5th grade.

Lectors

Lectors are the lay ministers who proclaim the first and second readings at Mass. They are the medium through which God’s word is communicated to the assembly. It is a response to our baptismal call to serve our faith community. Lectors must be one in faith with the Church and lead a lifestyle that shows a commitment to the Catholic Christian way of life. They must show a willingness to learn more about the liturgy as it relates to the life of the Church.

Liturgical Environment

The goal of this ministry is to enhance the community’s experience during Mass and during other visits to Sacred Heart's church building through the way the physical environment can express and support the movements of the Church’s year.

Music Ministry

Join together in song, under the talented direction of our choir director.  Singing is without question a most excellent form of prayer and, according to St. Augustine, by singing we pray twice.

Ushers

When people come to church, they experience not only the service, but the people associated with the faith community. We want the experience to be warm and welcoming. Our ushers are a part of that experience. They communicate a sense of belonging to the parishioners and are an important extension of the Church and the Catholic family.
